Antenna the same?

I learn something new every day on this forum.
Thanks. I was afraid I would have to re-fish the antenna.

You will need the Sirius tuner box and the antenna. The radio is sattelite ready. Once you have those two things, the worst will be mounting the antenna and running the wire.

Any tips for routing the antenna? I need to do that in our trailer. Also, there is nothing on the roof for the magnetic antenna to stick to that I can think of. I don't like the idea of poking a hole thru the roof and then trying to make sure it is sealed against leaks.

I have a portable unit that I used in our Itasca. I velcroed the antenna to the roof and ran a wire in through one of the windows. Then I just used my portable unit. You can buy a portable with the anteanna for around $50 or less which might make more sense than fiddling with the parts and labor to have it installed. Just my $.02.

It should already be wired for satelite radio if your camper came with that option. the antenna was installed by factory. All you have to do is activate the radio or subscribe to sirus or xm whatever the case may be.

I found online Jensen RV and took Acadian Bob's advice and ordered the dock and play as well as the antenna and receiver. There was a 20% discount code and I got all 3 for about $130.00. When I pick up my unit the dealer said they will install the tuner and receiver (both $60.00 cheaper than their price). I hope they do not put holes in the roof and create a leak!
